“Carpenter whisks through, shooting in all directions, heightening the contrasts between variations . . . This highly idiosyncratic transcription is worth a listen, and you won’t be bored.” — Classical Voice

The “extravagantly talented” (The New York Times) American organist Cameron Carpenter releases his first album on Decca Gold: a recording of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations juxtaposed with his own transcription of American composer Howard Hanson’s Romantic Symphony. Both works were performed on Carpenter’s tailor-made instrument, the International Touring Organ, which was designed to allow him to perform at nearly any location worldwide.
